One year


Exactly one year ago today, I created Blossom of hope and published my first post. Since then, I have reached 72 followers and over 6500 pageviews, posted 110 posts as well as growing my confidence. 

When I first started my blog, I never really realised how big it would be in my life. I didn't really know about all the designing and the community that surrounded it. I kinda under estimated it all if I am honest. For me, my blog only has really taken off from October onwards, and that is when I started taking it seriously and trying hard. If I could go back in time, I would definitely do the first 3-4 months of Blossom of Hope differently. 

One of my highlights from this year was definitely my blogging series which I did in February. I loved telling people about things I learnt and seeing how I could help people. Earlier I mentioned that blogging has increased my confidence. It has made me realise that maybe I do have something that I enjoy and am slightly good at. Writing and typing things up in life-y update posts helps me sort them out in my head and be happier. 

Blogging has helped me develop my interests and meet so many new people, like my internet friend, which is so crazy.   This has taught me that the only way I can achieve things in life, I have to take a chance. Hopefully, by May 17th 2017, I will have taken more chances and achieved even more.

This post was actually incredibly hard to write because this year has been so topsy turvy, hope you have enjoyed! 

Lots of Love
